No one cares about this movie, do they? That’s kind of too bad. It’s a sweet little film, and it says something a little unusual and interesting about relationships, and also narrative structure and assumptions.
I saw Happy Bhaag Jayegi, on a weeknight, at 8pm. So I am a little pie-eyed and sleep-deprived, and yet I will still attempt to write a quick spoiler free review!
I just posted a thing about summery songs, and one of the commentators reminded me of “Abhi Abhi” from Socha Na Tha. Which then reminded me about Socha Na Tha as a whole. I looooooooove Socha Na Tha! And I feel like, as Imtiaz Ali gets further and further from his roots, his first big break film is getting forgotten. And it shouldn’t be! Because I think it is better than what he is doing now. And it says something much more interesting about Indian society than all the Tamasha‘s and Rockstar‘s and Highway‘s put together.
